Thread: SEO

  1. #1

    Default SEO

    I did a simple basic image search for the term "APPLE" and "苹果" at the following search engines relevantly:

    "www.google.com"
    "www.yahoo.com"
    "www.bing.com"
    "www.ask.com"
    "www.sogou.com"
    "www.soso.com"

    The results:
    All shows the generic apple fruit that we eat at the top few ranking while only Google gave me the APPLE INC.

    What is Google thinking?
    What makes Google thought we are more interested in the gadget than in the fruit?
    Is Google more business minded or something else?

    And there's a big difference in results between the singular "WINDOW" and the plural "WINDOWS".

    When a kid goes googling for APPLE, he will later tell his mommy "Mommy, mommy, I want a silver apple and not one already munched.".

    Google SEO is not manually controlled. Instead, PageRanking is carried out by pigeons...

    Summary of Google's Page Ranking Formula:

    PR(A) = (1 - d) + d * SUM ((PR(I->A)/C(I))


    Where:

    • PR(A) is the PageRank of your page A.
    • d is the damping factor, usually set to 0,85.
    • PR(I->A) is the PageRank of page I containing a link to page A.
    • C(I) is the number of links off page I.
    • PR(I->A)/C(I) is a PR-value page A receives from page I.
    • SUM (PR(I->A)/C(I)) is the sum of all PR-values page A receives from pages with links to page A..


    Looks like a typical formula learned in my college days.
